Idiosyncrasy of the algorithm and new forms of viewing art in public spaces

3D-GOOGLE-EARTH-MODEL # 7, "Die Erdkugel als Koffer" a collaboration with Peter Weibel, 2020.

3D-Google-Earth-Modell of Peter Weibels land art piece "Die Erdkugel als Koffer" at the "Österreicher Skulpturenpark", installed 2004. The video simulates a virtual drone flight around the sculpture, based on a three-dimensional model, rendered from Google Earth data by using a photogrammetric process. Idiosyncrasy of the algorithm and new forms of viewing art in public spaces: The relationship between photography and sculpture dates back to the younger mediums`s invention. The series of 3D-Google-earth-models, since fall 2018, redefines this relationship with the help of post-photographic means, to venture a new form of viewing art in public space, through satellite photography constructed as a virtual globe such as Apple Maps, Google Earth. The algorithm, which brings the geometric capture, measurement by photogrammetry in line with photographic means, is not always "perfect" and therefore, through the medium itself, gives the threedimensional photos their idiosyncrasy.
